I have been waiting a long time to try out these next few projects and I can’t wait to share them with yous! First, I love owls and second, I love organizing everything. Combine these two loves together and you get this next crochet creation. I found this cute pattern on Pinterest and quickly pinned it to my “Crochet Pattern” board with the hopes of one day taking this project on. The day came, finally, when I decided to pull out my hook and give’er. If you have ever been to my house you will notice the neatly placed crochet blanket which is folded over the back of the couch. You will also notice that when you sit on this side of the couch the blanket tends to slide off the back of the couch. If you then happen to notice the burning look on my face you will promptly pick up the blanket you have just knocked over. Show some class people! I’m sorry, I am very particular about these things. Everything has its place, I can’t help it!! To fix this problem I thought I would make my very own crochet owl basket to store the blanket in the living room, problem solved. No more dirty looks from your’s truly when you knock it off the freakin’ couch…you know who you are!
Here is the final product with the neatly stored blanket. For all my fellow hookers out there who are wanting to give this a try, you can find this pattern on Etsy. The pattern is recommended for beginners and has great instructions. I used a light grey yarn and added the buttons. I think the only thing I would change for next time is using a thicker yarn so that it holds its shape a bit better.
All in all I am very pleased with the final results. This project is perfect for adding extra storage to any room, whether it be the bathroom, living room, a kid’s room, etc. Plus who doesn’t love a cute owl?! It’s almost impossible not to fall in love. I sadly won’t be making these for my Etsy store (BBCraftlandia) but I will be adding the next basket case project that I will be sharing next week so stay tuned. Happy Crafting!!
